In this unique read, Ms. Hightower has creatively combined a detailed view into the lives of a small-town family with the mystery and suspense surrounding the deaths of the parents.
As the plotline develops, the siblings' relationships are uncovered layer by layer. Their loyalty is admirable when one is accused of their father's murder.
In the sleepy town of Beaufort, South Carolina, Georgie Smallwood works in her antique restoration business and hopes her wayward teenaged son Hank will someday return home.
But Georgie's quiet life soon becomes a journey in despair. When her mother dies, Georgie harbors a suspicion that her ex-marine father, Fielding Smallwood, is responsible.
And when another calamity befalls the family — their father plummets to his death — will Georgie and her siblings suffer blame?
